WHAT CAN YOU TEST FOR?
PGT-M/PGT-A/NGS can offer genetic screening for numerous diseases and disorders classified as either chromosomal disorders, single gene defects, or sex-linked disorders. Specific chromosomes are tested for specific disorders, including (but not limited to):
New Hope Fertility embryologists can also test for X-linked diseases, which only affect males, (e.g. Hemophilia A, Adrenoleukodystrophy, Hunter’s disease) by identifying the sex of embryos and transferring only female embryos. We also offer PGT-M for single gene defects such as Cystic Fibrosis (CF), the common deletion (^F508), Spinal Muscular Atrophy (SMA), and Myotonic Dystrophy (DM).
NHFC also performs aneuploidy screening and chromosome translocations to detect abnormalities that may cause spontaneous abortions in early pregnancy. We can perform PGT-M for all single gene defects where the specific mutation is identified and as long as we can develop a special genetic probe for the disease.
Our NYC fertility center was ranked among the top fertility clinics in New York by live birth rate from frozen embryos according to recent SART data. Forbes lists New Hope Fertility Center as one of the largest fertility centers in the US by cycle volume.
